    Machinery of Dominance: Women, Men and Technical Know-How is Cynthia Cockburn’s 1985 work that responds to the question “Why are there so few women engineers, technicians and craftworkers?”. With three case-case studies—in warehousing, clothing manufacture, and hopsital x-ray—Cockburn puts her case that “so long as the relations of technology remain masculine, an ‘equal opportunities’ policy is of little use.”
